Season 4 of “Manifest” doesn’t have an official plot description, but we do know that showrunner Jeff Rake has a plan to take the series through several more seasons. “I pitched it, as someone who didn’t have a previous serialized show before, with a roadmap and clear chapters along the way,” Jeff said during a panel at the Television Critics Association in 2020.
“We don’t always know the number of episodes we get per season, so we roll with the punches. But the show wants to be six seasons,” he continued.
As it stands, “Manifest” is just halfway through the run that Jeff envisions for it. NBC has already announced the cancellation of “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” after two seasons on the air, and “Manifest” may be the next series to get the axe. If it does, fans may never get the full story of what happened to Flight 828. The best thing to do at this stage is tell NBC directly that we still want more of the show, and before it gets renewed, stream available episodes on Peacock, Netflix, and Hulu.
